Time Out Challenge 3

'Oh you could make me a card for my Dad's 65th Birthday'……phrases like that strike fear in to me - and that it exactly what one of my friends said to me last week. I love card making - but when it comes to creating something specifically for someone - I do tend to panic a bit.

I tried to get ideas of themes to use and so was given, football or gardening!! The football team in question has a maroon colour scheme and so I decided to go with that. I thought I could bring in the gardening/natural aspect by using some kraft card - perhaps a tedious link!!

Anyway, here is what I created. Luckily, my friend is over the moon with it!!

Again, apologies for the poor photo quality.

The Birthday sentiment comes from Uniko Studio's 'A gift for you' set. The 'Happy' is from Clearly Besotted Fresh Flower set and the Dad is by personal impressions - a real mix!!!!

There is some DP by docrafts capsule collections - they are so versatile. I thought this one replicated footballs a bit!!!

Since the theme at Time Out this time is a birthday card (masculine if possible), I thought I would enter this card.

Any comments always very much appreciated.

  1. Laura I love how you worked these ideas into your card, so creative, and a fab CAS design. So pleased you joined us at TIME OUT and hope to see you soon x

  2. I laughed when I read your response to the "please make me a card" request, because that's exactly my reaction! It's so much easier just to make 'whatever' and hope that someone might like the result! Still, the challenge of doing something special is intriguing. Your card, Laura, is absolutely brilliant and and "handsome": personalized, creative, and totally "guy" perfect! Isn't it cool how Uniko and CB products work well together? You're rockin' with both companies' products!
